“Meerea Park? flagship shiraz is grown on the Ivanhoe Vineyard and then fermented with 30 percent whole bunches. Maturation is in all French oak, 40 percent of it new. No Alexander Munro Shiraz was produced from the rain-affected 2008 vintage.Less earth, more fruit and oak. The earthy Hunter characters will develop with time. Good signs all around. Flavours of pure, bright plum, creamy-smoke oak, woodspice and fresh cherries. It? a beautifully pure, pristine wine. Tannin is soft and ripe. Can? fault it. Accordingly, the contents of my bottle disappeared too fast.
Drink it while it? young and spunky; or wait another four or five years for developed characters to set in.” Rated : 93 Points
